Jack Grealish who was a super-hit at Aston Villa joined Manchester City at the start of the season. Moreover, his move to City was a stellar one as Pep’s side paid a massive £100 million to acquire his signature. Grealish enjoyed a roaring career at Aston Villa, scoring 32 goals and assisting 43 in 213 appearances. His exploits earned him a startling move to Manchester City.
However, there’s still a lot of love left in Jack Grealish for Aston Villa. The winger still closely follows his former club, keeping a tab on their moves. Recently he commented on Matty Cash signing a new deal at Aston Villa. Grealish commented ‘Love it’ on Cash’s Instagram post which confirmed his extension at the club. Cash is known to be close friends with Grealish, and the City player pondered love on Villa’s transfer decision.
Matty Cash has improved steadily this season as well, scoring 3 goals and further creating 3. The right-back has also come up with 2.5 tackles and 2.3 clearances per game in the premier league this season. Moreover, Cash also manages a successful dribble per game in the league.
The Polish looked excited and more than happy after signing his extension with the club. While speaking to the club’s official website, Cash told,
“I’m delighted. It’s another proud day for me and my family. It’s another step in the right direction, and I just want to keep progressing every day, working hard and getting better. A big thanks to the club for rewarding me with a new contract, I can’t thank them enough.”
The defender further expressed his love for the club where he has only spent 18 months so far.
“It feels like home. I love coming to Bodymoor every day and working hard,”
